The capital of the United States, the District of Columbia contains the lion's share of the country's most treasured monuments, memorials, and public museums.
National Air and Space Museum and National Museum of African American History and Culture will appeal to museum buffs. Step off the beaten path and head to The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine. Explore Washington DC's surroundings by going to Harpers Ferry (White Hall Tavern, Harpers Ferry National Historical Park, & more), Ballenger Creek Linear Trail (in Frederick) and The Baltimore Basilica (in Baltimore). The adventure continues: explore the wealth of natural beauty at Great Falls Park, admire all the interesting features of Antietam National Battlefield, explore the world behind art at Renwick Gallery, and trek along Stony Man Mountain Overlook.
